If a Library Is Bookless, What’s In It?, from NPR

It’s always interesting to me to see how libraries are presented in the media. This piece makes us look rather cutting-edge, which is a happy thing.

Amusingly, there were technical problems with the first guest, who was connecting remotely from the studios of a member station, and what Neal Conan got was dead air. And my immediate thought was: and that is a why we will always need physical libraries, because technology fails, and then you need a physical book or a human being. Also, in a happy bit of North Caroliniana, one of the guests is from the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
